The CeeLok FAS-T connector from TE Connectivity (TE) is now available in square flange receptacle shell versions for both wire-applied and printed circuit board-applied applications. The CeeLok FAS-T connector easily meets 10 Gigabit Ethernet speeds, with ample headroom for even the most stringent link budgets. The connector achieves outstanding signal integrity due to the patented T-shaped pin pattern that provides noise cancellation and decoupling to minimize cross-talk. The CeeLok FAS-T connectors have been designed for optimum performance in some of the harshest environments in military, commercial aerospace and marine/offshore applications.
The CeeLok FAS-T connector provides an easy to terminate, high-speed/bandwidth interface that delivers on the demand of size and weight reduction, while satisfying ever-increasing performance needs.
This new receptacle shell configuration is available in electroless nickel or low reflectivity black zinc nickel plating. Additionally, TE now offers a range of lanyard-attached, sealed, EMI-resistant protective caps for use with both plug and receptacle CeeLok FAS-T connectors. The protective caps have been designed to pass IP67 and, like the connectors, are available with electroless nickel or low-reflectivity black zinc nickel plating.
The CeeLok FAS-T connector easily meets today's high-speed signal requirements for both cat 5e and cat 6a cabling and is a true 100 Ohm impedance connector compatible with various other high-speed protocols. It features crimp-snap contacts that enable easy termination and field repairability. Its unique integral backshell provides 360-degree shielding.
